information that could be used as evidence? and we're left with the lingering question and there's no good answer to this yet and that is why did he do that? the new york police commissioner ray kelly had reported that he had his hair painted red and said he was the joker and since then, there has been verification of that, that james holmes, the 24-year-old suspect, did indeed tell police he was the joker, but why is the outstanding question, ron. >> we've got 12 people dead, 71 reported wounded. is there any word as far as the wounded, how many of those 71 might be critically wounded? >> i just talked to some people who were at the hospital, the major hospital where the victims had been brought and they say they're being very closed mouthed. you can understand why and that is because a lot of the family members are trying to be contacted and so, we really don't know. we do know that some people have already been discharged, including a baby who was less than a year old who was inside the theatre, but as far as how many maybe seriously, maybe have life threatening injury, i haven't seen t
. >> i'd like us to pause for a moment of silence for the victims of this terrible tragedy. >>> good evening, i'm ron reagan in seattle filling in for chris matthews. leading off tonight, tragedy in colorado. it happens all too often and the names have become to familiar. jones borrow, arkansas, virginia tech, columbine and now, aurora, colorado. it happened not far from columbine, where a sold out crowd gaterred in theatre nine for the premier of "the dark knight rises." police say a 24-year-old man walked through an exit door dressed in black, a black helmet, a bulletproof vest, throat protector, groin protector and black gloves. police say he was also carrying three weapons. a rifle, shotgun and a handgun. witnesses say holmes calmly set off some kind of device and began firing randomly and terrified moviegoers. people desperately tried to flee, in some cases, helping victims get out. in other cases, simply running for their lives. police say 71 were shot and 12 were killed. james holmes was arrested without a struggle in his car outside the theatre. police say holmes warned he ri
of your own money back. >> so joining us tonight is john who worked for rick santorum. who decided to bring miss personality, miss congeniality to start the republican convention? what do you think is going on here? >> i think it is great pick. first of all, you have a governor who ran in a democratic state of principles cutting spending and taxes and got elected and governing that way. he is a great speaker. he will go out there and make a great case why this president has been a disaster. >> what will he subway the guy that won the nomination? >> i think he will -- he has been with romney from day one. he has been out there supporting him and saying that we immediate somebody that knows thousand turn this economy around. but at the same time, you have to remember, this is a referendum on the sitting president and the, frankly, i'm -- i'm happy the romney people are willing to take the gloves off and start fighting back. >> have you noticed when -- let's go back. have you noticed the republicans who are up for vp are the only ones not saying release your tax returns? that's one wa
country that killed 12 and wound dozens more. so what's it done to us? what has this event stirred in this country? made us different from the people who watch this program, say, just a week ago. i want to know. i want to hear again the many separate human actions that night that tell us what kind of a country we are and where we are headed. i want to hear not just about the villain and the victims, but also the heroes. the impulsive good guys that night. the ones that hemming way described as courage, grace under fire and under pressure. i want to know how aurora is going to affect this country. us. today brought the announce many that denver, colorado, just miles from the tragedy will host the first presidential debate this autumn. this all but guarantees that the two presidential candidates, president obama and mitt romney will be asked about the tragedy. what should they say? let's ask governor ed rendell what barack obama should say. it will be interesting. to start with, let's their personal stories following a tragedy like aurora. look at how heartbreaking they are and tell
attacked. there are questions about what definitions you want to use. there are definitions about time. the timeline and so on. but the basic attack was well-known and i think in its heart, had a lot to it, the romney campaign had first dismissed it. they tried to brush it off, make fun of it, they tried to counterattack by saying the president sent money overseas, but it's only today more than a week later they're trying to react to a story they originally sent their staff down to the "washington post" to complain about. >> joan, first read had this response, quote, perhaps the biggest problem for team romney is that this ad comes more than a week after the obama camp released its bain outsourcing ad. that's not quite rapid response. also, today, "the new york times" reports on the disappointment of some romney supporters, built a reputation during the republican primaries as tough street fighters, but now, mr. romney finds himself confronting concern he is not nimble and aggressive enough to withstand the democratic assault against him. and yesterday on fox news, mitt romney was aske
with general mitt romney. i use that term sarcastically because general in this case is an armchair general. the gentleman who spoke to the veterans of foreign wars could be no more foreign with foreign wars, no match in his resume, only his plans. how many countries does he want it fight in the next four years. does he want to outdo bush one with one war or bush two with two. there he was reading a speech by the same neo-kinds that took us into iraq and always seem to have the next war on his agenda. does this guy have any idea the words of war have meaning and dead and wounded, no meaning stupidity and deceit through bush and cheney, backed up by chaens in this election speak of leagues, national security as we never heard by w. and cheney and libby did when they had their hands there. chairman of republican national committee and msnbc political analyst and editor in chief of national memo.com. let's take a look at romney's speech before the vfw members today. let's listen. >> i am an unapologetic believer in the greatness of america. i am not ashamed of american power. i'm guided by one
. i want to go to bob. thank you for joining us. bob, you've had a unique experience sitting with mitt romney talking about something he'd least of all want to talk about which is his tax returns. give us the tick-tock. >> so, i spoke to romney this morning, chris, and he's digging in, he's sick and tired of talking about his tax returns. talking about his offshore investments. he wants to move on. i'm not sure if he's going to be successful, but his whole strategy today was to push back against obama, show some spine and say he's going to play a little hardball with obama's allies and he's not going to give in and release anything pre 2010. >> why not? does he give you any sense in his denial -- what's he so sensitive about? can you tell? >> he's sensitive because he says to me today that he's already released hundred of pages and he said to national review today, i don't want to release hundreds more, thousands more, to let the obama people quote lie about these thousands of other pages in his pre 2010 returns. he i think is not nervous about what's in the returns, but about the poli
thing i know. this guy has fallen into the hands of the same guys who took us into iraq and now iran. he's reading the script with all this talk about apology for our strength. like marty talking about muscular foreign policy. the metaphor of war. >> this is someone who has no strong convictions of his own, chris. no experience in foreign policy. he is going to the basket with the same move republicans have used for the last 10 years or more, democrats are supposedly weak. the president has a very easy response to that, tell it to osama bin laden. tell it to moammar gadhafi. there's no question the president is willing to use american power when appropriate. however, he is judicious with this, not a crazy warmonger, not somebody who thinks everybody is a nail because has he a hammer. i think your point is very well taken. this is somebody with no real experience in these matters who entrusted himself to a group of people who are proving wrong. >> how can you say, we went into afghanistan, then went into iraq again a second time under a second bush. now he's talking -- trumpeting like a b
, he's given us one year, what in those returns has been distorted? what's his claim to be a victim here? of his own limited tax disclosures. >> i don't think it's so much of being a victim. he just does not want this dominating the conversation. romney's whole campaign is pegged to being former ceo of bain capital. he's running on his success. so he's just playing a political strategy here. nothing else. not really complaining, but rather just trying to change this whole nature of the campaign. >> i think he's hiding something. in pennsylvania today where mitt romney's campaigning, the obama campaign is running a tv ad that zeros in on romney's tax returns and asks what i'm asking. what's he hiding? let's listen to it. >> tax havens, offshore accounts, carried interest. mitt romney has used every trick in the book. romney admits over the past would years he paid less than 15% in taxes on $43 million in income. makes you wonder if he pays any taxes at all. won't release anything before 2010. >> you know what? i've put out as much as we're going to put out. >> what is mitt romney hid
matthews in washington. let me start with general mitt romney. i use that term sarcastically because general in this case is an armchair general. the man that spoke today to the affairs of war could not be more foreign to foreign wars. even venezuela had no match in his resume. only in his plans. how many countries does he want to fight in the next four years? does he want to outdo bush i with one war or bush ii with two more? there he was reading a speech by the same neo-kinds that took us into iraq and always seem to have the next war on his agenda. does this guy have any idea the words of war have meaning and dead and wounded, no meaning in the stupidity and deceit we went through under bush and cheney? backed up by cheney in this election speak of leaks? national security leaks as we f we never heard what the w. crowd led by chainy and his fall guy libby did when they had their hands in there. michael steele, chairman of the republican national committee and msnbc political analyst. joe, editor-in-chief of the nationalmemo.com. let's take a look at romney's speech before the vfw
of us benefit from this. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> how tragedy unites. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with the aftershock. after midnight tonight, we get through a week of this attack inside our country that killed 12 and wounded dozens more. so what's it done to us? what has this event stirred in this country? made us different from the people who watch this program, say, just a week ago. i want to know. i want to hear again the many separate human actions that night that tell us what kind of a country we are and where we are headed. i want to hear not just about the villain and the victims, but also the heroes. the impulsive good guys that night. the ones who showed what hemingway described as courage, grace under fire, and under pressure. i want to know how aurora is going to affect this country. us. today brought the announce many that denver, colorado, just miles from the tragedy will host the first presidential debate this autumn. this all but guarantees that the two president
cain took us and ed rollins is taking us. chris, the rhetoric in this country right now is so dangerous that it's important to acknowledge they have now staked out a lunatic fringe. they've now said certain kinds of comments are beyond the pail. that's a good thing. and we should applaud that today. you know a however is coming. however -- >> here's i like fehry a lot. he has to defend the indefensible. in this case he's saying the right thing. michele bachmann is off the rails. here's someone who agreed with her. she was on today with glenn beck. >> oh, yes. >> beck defended the congresswoman and attacked john mccain who he said is marching to the orders of the muse limb brotherhood. that's john mccain being accused this time. you've got to keep up with your crowd. they're frisky out there. let's listen to glenn and michele. >> john mccain and all of the elephant media are falling in line with the muslim brotherhood. >> well, michele bachmann continued her allegations against hillary clinton's aide. listen to her. >> she is the chief aide to the secretary of state. and we quoted from a
that on a daily basis. look. we are a great country. we have a sense of community. we used to care for each other and take care of each other and politics never got in the way. if someone lost their job, we all pitched in and took care of them until they got back on their feet. i think we've lost a little of that in the country. and when we band together in tragedies like this, it shows us what america could be. what we have to do is to do something to limit the possibility that something like this happens again. we can never eliminate the possibility but gosh, in the name of those victims, we ought to do something. >> i'm impressed when people turn on the tv and identify with something that happened 3,000 miles away. and they would not have identify with these people except their largely fellow americans. there is something american of ours that goes beyond politics and the sympathy, the real, i've been listening to another networks all week and it is something. >> it is something everybody can relate to. we all go to the movies. might daughter went to "dark night rises" the night before. i had
and sort of corral us. look, we have a job to do, too, in the press corps. that is, for our readers, get answers for a candidate for president of the united states. the fact is that he had not given any real time to the traveling press corps and a question and answer session. traditional press conference like many candidates do. like president obama did four years ago when he was then senator obama and so we had no choice but to yell questions when we have taunt to the candidate when he is walking to his motorcade after he finishes a public event. it is unfortunate it got to that. this is what happens when we are trying to get answers and no opportunity to ask governor romney questions in a traditional question and answer press conference. >> you know what it looks like here, when you are with -- when you are watching romney on the road, he looks like one of those robots in the hall of the presidents at disney world. stand it and walk robotcally and don't -- only talk the thing they always say over and over again to the tourists coming by. he doesn't look like he wants to engage in any h
michele bachmann with some help from glenn beck charge that the whole u.s. government including according to beck john mccain himself are all part of some crowd taking orders from the muslim brotherhood. tonight, we hear the first whistles being blown. guys who have served this country in uniform are standing up to this crazy, un-american talk. god save mccain and say i say and all those left right and center who say enough's enough. i'm joined by msnbc political analyst and editor at large joan walsh. john feehery. he also joins us tonight. joan, john, what do we got? john, how do you explain this cacophony right now that's going on? all this talk about people learning how to be an american? the charges, sununu's up to this. you've got the candidate himself talking about the president being foreign in his thinking. what's that angle that we're getting? because bachmann's the ultimate case of this. >> let me first disassociate, mix these up. take them apart. michele bachmann's thing, absolutely outrageous. i know mccain was absolutely right. you have quibble, have some serious disagreemen
's last word. thanks for joining us tonight, zach. >> thank you, lawrence. > under the boardwalk with chris christie. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in san francisco. let me start tonight with the brazen decision by mitt romney to have chris christie open the republican convention. what a blunder bust. it's like bringing in the nastiest weapon of the boardwalk to blast at the president. got the message? i got it the second i heard christie's name. romney will not put the big guy on the ticket. oh, no. he's not perfect enough for the team. no. we're talking outsourcing. have the big noise from jersey do the nasty stuff. pick a pleasant, unthreatening fellow like, say, tim pawlenty for the ticket. christie now joins the tuba section along with john sununu and other big boys brought in to pound away to obama. having won the nomination in a clown show, here come the parade of elephants. uh-oh. look out. there's some rogues out there. republicans who wonder why mitt romney won't release those sticky tax returns. and why he's letting the crazies attack hill
's gone. >> i think he's embarrassed how she was used. >> i hope so. cheney is not. he was the user. and cheney is, you know, holding fund raisers for mitt romney. mitt called him a person of judgment and wisdom. so you're going to see dick cheney playing a role. john bolton is going to have a huge role. he gets floated as national security adviser or even secretary of state which i think is preposterous. and that whole phrase, the american century, goes back to the project for a new american century. which was the blueprint for the bush foreign policy and for the war with iraq. so we've got those same people again. it's something like 70% of his named foreign policy advisers come from the bush/cheney regime. >> the smartest in that crowd intellectually is bill kristol and he's been holding back. maybe there's a bit of a fear if you show too much face in this they'll actually see you coming. >> yeah. i mean, the problem is that most of america is exhausting by war. and that's why it rarely comes up. it didn't come up much in the midterms. it won't come up much in this presidential c
they want us to fight. people voted for w, they got iraq. why? because the army poised behind the uninformed ill-read w knew what he didn't. when 9/11 struck, they struck. this time it's iran. but don't think they're going to end it there. these old cold warrers haven't been happy since the berlin wall fell. listen to romney's words. he didn't write them himself. he'll say what it takes to get the right wing behind him. but the right wing will follow him right to the white house. they will grab the levers of military power like rumsfeld and cheney before them. and they will use them. you can bet on that. joan walsh is a political analyst. joan, you're laughing because you know i'm telling the absolute truth. there is an army of john boltons out there and all these people. they have nothing else to do but get jobs in a new republican administration every ten years or so, or 12 years in which they can push for their latest war agenda. they are absolutely consistent. here's the question. who wins if obama loses? let's start with mitt romney and his foreign policy team including noted neocon joh
joins from us poland. glen johnson is "the boston globe's" politics reporter. with me here in the studio, simon marks, chief correspondent for feature story news. jonathan martin, i know you don't like to get into this but let's talk about the fact that you are on the spot and you have "dateline" integrity and looking good. here's the infamous dustup in warsaw. early this morning, reporters covering romney tried to shout questions to the governor. as he got into his motorcade. romney had only answered three questions from the press corps during the entire three ctrip. his spokesman made it clear he wouldn't answer any more than the three. >> governor romney! >> governor romney, do you have a statement for the palestinians? >> what about your gaffes? >> governor romney, do you feel that your gaffe have overshadowed your foreign trip? >> show some respect. >> governor romney. >> show some respect. >> we don't have another chance to ask him questions. >> this is a holy site for the polish people. show some respect. >> that's going to get -- go down in history. kiss my -- the rest of it -- a
else and start doing it? >> i think that's exactly right. us british are not very good at positivity. we've been whining about the olympics for several weeks now. you've heard about the problems with the security. the taxi drivers, the cabdrivers have been moaning about the olympic route network. you get them in every olympics, of course. but there is nothing quite like somebody coming from overseas, telling us that we're not behind our olympics, for brits to really get behind it. i think so since mitt romney rocked up a couple days ago, you can almost see the brits put their arms around the olympic stadiums say say you know what? we are behind this. i've been watching some of the opening ceremonies secretly because you can't see it for a couple of hours yet. everyone is behind the games and it's looking good. >> he still looks stiff as hell walking around number 10 there. it's a strange way the guy walks. i want to know the politics of this. we'll get to the pictures and the quotes in a second. here's the point. i thought cameron would like him. aren't they fellow tories? >> i think
talking about. >> apparently, he admits he was one of them. now he says he was naive and is joining us tonight. in the side show, how the right managed to conclude president obama is abandoning america for evil europ on independence day. never let the facts get in the way after good story. we begin with health care and whether republicans can repeal it. michael steele was chairman of the republican party, maggie habberman writes for politico. welcome. republicans had vowed to repeal obama's health care law. to do that, mitt romney would have to win and republicans would need to retake the senate and even then, it could be complicated. the senate minority lead er mitch mcconnell conceded that yesterday when speak tog a group back home in kentucky. >> thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in in direction, i'd say the odds are still on your side because it's a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place. >> maggie, is there a clare path for the gop to repeal obamacare? >> there is a clear path in the sense they don't need a cloture vote. as
states somehow not one of us. not an american. someone indoctrine nated in anti-americanism and going after hillary's people saying her closest aide is somehow secretly working as a mole for the muslim brotherhood. this is really looney country. your thoughts. >> i agree with you, chris and i think it's gotten nastier and more personal sooner than i've seen it in other presidential elections. as yes, we've had that before everything from the day of the ad to the willie horton ad to the swift-boating of 2004, but here, i get the sense it's personal involving the personalities and personal life and times of the two candidates. the obama campaign is focusing relentlessly and without apology on mitt romney's business career, his wealth in the story of how he got there. and even though mitt romney demanded an apology the other day from the president for some of the things that the obama campaign suggested about romney east lack of truthfulness in filling out various forms, the president rejected the call for an apology and said put on your big boy pants. this is the way it is. you have to

the use of some illicit substance or abuse of prescription medication to give that type of appearance. >> let's go to corbin dates, a witness in the second row of that theater. thank you for joining us tonight. what did you feel when you saw the picture of that guy in court today, corbin, james holmes. >> i'd say as soon as i was watching the trial on cnn today, i felt completely numb. i felt no emotion whatsoever when i was looking at the face of the gunman. >> did he look dangerous to you? did he remind you of what you saw in the theater? >> honestly, looking at his face, he looked like an average person that you would see probably at a mall or anywhere common. you would not put two and two together if you saw that person and if you were there that night. you would never know. >> compare him to what you saw, the two gentlemen, whatever you saw, compare him to what you saw in the theater the night that everything went horribly. >> the night in the theater, as soon as the door swung open and the person in black walked into the theater, this person had a stroll like he knew what was go
